'Bhagavan, I have been coming here for the past several years but still there has been no progress. I am just as bad a sinner as before,' moaned a devotee. Bhagavan advised, "There are no milestones in this path. How can you be sure as to how far you have travelled? Why don't you follow the first class passenger? He informs the guard about his destination, closes the door and sleeps soundly. That is all that he need do. The guard will wake him up at the correct station.'
